Eye Shadow -Bourjois - Multi Shimmer Eye Loose Powder - Ambre 07

Not that I really needed another bronzey brown shadow but when I saw this I had to have it. This loose shimmer powder has depth you would not believe it is no ordinary bronzey brown. I read one review that says it is a peachy bronze. I think it depends on your complexion. On me (CCC) it is a bronzey brown. This can be purchased at Sephora for $16 U.S.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid Mandarin Ice

VEry scary in the tube. BUt if you like the tube look this gloss is buildable. I like the sheer orange glittery shine of this gloss and it works very well with my complexion (caramel). I have worn this with just mascara becuase I really wanted to wear it. It looks great alone or with liner. THis can be purchased at drugstores.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Midnight Cowgirl Eyeshadow

This is one of my favorite shadows one of two that I have seen the metal bottom of the container. I use this as a wash with just about everything. I also love this shadow alone when I don't want appear too made up. I love the glitter. THis can be purchased at Sephora or urbandecay.com for $15.00 U.S.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid in Pink Carats

I love love this gloss. THey were very elusive in the beginning which made me want them even more. Once I got one I got another and another. This is a bit bright in the tube as well as on the model in the ad but you can wear a sheer coating or you can build it up to achieve the color that shows through the tube. It is not as sticky as some glosses but it has pretty good staying power IMHO. Run don't walk to get these before they are no more. These can be purchased at drugstores for $5- 6.00 + tax US
Oh how I miss Skinmarket. I had just discovered it on a trip to San Diego. I was happy I decided on this gloss palette. It has 6 glosses in it which can be mixed together or worn alone. I love that it cam ewith a lip brush and a mirror inside of the palette. One of my best purchases ever.
Although the packaging was very deceiving. The tin is huge so you think you are getting a lot of gloss but not really. I love how Cargo has the 2 coordinating colors together which is why I keep buying them. This product can be purchased at Sephora for $17.00 + tax U.S.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Crystal Glitters Shadow Pencil in Disco Ball

I really wanted a silver shadow and since I was at work I thought this would be a great purchased since I needed no brush or applicator. This product sucks. My left eye was already creasing before I finished my right eye. But I still had faith so I tried it again with my coveted F.Y. Eye and had the same results. Yuck
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 266 Thin Small Angle (Synthetic hair)
LuvaofMU 3/4/2003 8:46:00 PM
This is the finest small angle brush I have used. It is very precise and holds its shape. It works very well wet or dry. I have tried other angle brushes but none come close to the quality of this brush. This brush can be purchased at MAC stores or counters.
Moisturizers -Suave - Skin Therapy UV Protection Moisture Lotion

I had forgotten to pack moisturizer for an unexpected trip. I go to the local Walmart where I was visiting and could not find the Pond's I usually use so I got this instead. It serves the purpose since I do not have overly dry skin and I like the fact that it has SPF15. It is a good consistency not too thick not too thin. I would buy this again and it will be perfect for summer. Tjis can be purchased at drugstores for about $3.00
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Angled Eye Shadow Brush

I love this brush although I had to wash it to reshape it prior to use. It does not work as well as my MAC #266. BUt this is a good brush for using in the crease. This is a great lower priced alternative if you are not looking for precision. I got this brush at Target for $3.99
Misc Beauty Tools -La Cross - Exact Tweezers needlepoint
LuvaofMU 2/9/2003 9:07:00 PM
I hear everyone raving about the Tweezerman tweezers. But I KNEW I could find a cheaper alternative that worked for me. LaCross has the same lifetime guarantee as Tweezerman. I purchased these at Target for $3.00
I love this concealer. It is just the right consistency for covering little imperfections. I have a tendency to be red in between my eyebrows and the tops of my cheeks in the morning this works perfectly to cover the redness. It also works well for me on little outbreaks I get from wearing my hair over my eye too long. I highly recommend this if you do not have major skin issues.
I don't really remember why I purchased this. BUt I love it. Don't get me wrong I have no idea if the caffeine theory works but the cream feels so good on my eye lids at night. Although I do believe it makes my lids smoother. I purchased this at the MAC store it retails for $25.00.
Did not like this when I first purchased it. I got the Spice liner to go with it. Yuck. I tried it with my HG liner which is Cork. I now love this lipglass. It is MLBB
I purchased this because it was suggested by a MA at a MAC store in Kansas City. When I got home I took another look and said what the heck was I thinking. The MA suggested I wear it with Purrr lipglass. I looked like a painted up floosie. P.S. I gave it 2 lipsticks because I am going to try and make it work with something else.
